(Oxford English Dictionary)

Advocacy for librarians is advocacy for libraries ---- not new to the librarians of CCL or ALA's president-elect.

Camila "Alire will become president-elect at the American Library Association annual conference next month, and will take the top spot the following year.

In an April interview with Library Journal, "Alire stressed advocacy training for librarians." She "will push for enhancements to what she calls “grassroots advocacy” by front-line librarians. That means getting the front-line people, both librarians and other staff, involved."
